Sending your bill will cost you, 2 cents more

January 8, 2006

Albany- It might not break your bank, but it will cost you two more cents to mail everything from your bills to love letters. Starting Sunday, a first class stamp will cost you 39 cents.

We checked with the local post offices who have filled their stamp machines with plenty of two cent stamps. Many mailing letters were caught unprepared for the rate change.

"If I had prepared ahead of time it would have been okay, but I didn't," said Chen Chi Mitchell, of Albany.

The post office said if you have an entire book of stamps or a roll of unused stamps you can trade it in for a book or roll of the new stamps, plus the difference.
